Although I've shared a few short posts with you, my dear readers, regarding our garden harvests, putting foods by and such, I've not shared any photos about some of the littles' summer activities - the ones that kept me away from you.
|EJ and his newly sheared lamb, Looney Tunes, at county fair weigh-in.|
|OG and her newly sheared lamb, Lucy, at the sonogram station - checking muscle depth.|
|EJ participating in his first dummy roping ... these outings always bring on excessive begging for a horse.|
|EJ posing with his 2nd place prize - a saddle blanket. Since he has a saddle & now a blanket, I suppose he really does need a horse to go with them ... no wonder he's always begging for one.|
|Bath Time! Wool Light gets the lambs snow white before fair.|
|OG practicing for her shooting sports rifle competitions.|
|OG & our family dog, Samson in the showmanship arena. OG and Sam won 4-H Grand Champions for showmanship AND obedience this year!|
|EJ and Piper in the showmanship arena.|
|EJ and Looney Tunes at the lamb judging competition.|
|Here's OG with Lucy in the lamb judging competition.|
|EJ with his 4-H ribbons and posters. He won 5 blue ribbons and 3 red ribbons this year.|
|OG posing with her 4-H ribbons and posters. She won 1 Grand Champion plaque, 3 Best in Shows, 9 blues and 1 red this year.|
Of course up here on the northern plains, garden harvesting and county fair occur simultaneously adding to the business of it all.
Blessings to you and yours ...
